Our publications and presentations address a multitude of intertwined environmental issues that often overlap. It is difficult to draw a clear line between natural resources, especially as they interact in the water-energy-food nexus and are combined within the sustainability concept. Below is a list with selected publications addressing water, energy, and food resource problems, management, decision support and policy issues.
